Update on ABN AMRO’s Annual General Meeting and the coronavirus pandemic

Press release -

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, ABN AMRO is providing this update on the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is to be held on 22 April 2020.

For the protection of the health and safety of all those attending the meeting and to comply with Dutch government directives, ABN AMRO has taken additional precautionary measures.

On behalf of ABN AMRO, only a limited number of Executive Board and Supervisory Board members will attend the meeting in person; other members will participate remotely. All social gatherings and catering facilities surrounding the meeting have been cancelled. A pre-meeting and post-meeting reception will not be provided.

As previously indicated, ABN AMRO urges shareholders/depositary receipt (DR) holders not to attend the meeting in person, and to make use of the option to exercise their voting rights by way of electronic or written proxy or by virtual participation. This can be done via www.abnamro.com/evoting. As usual, the meeting will be broadcast via webcast via www.abnamro.com/shareholdermeeting. Shareholders who nevertheless consider attending the meeting in person, are asked to send their request to ABN AMRO before 17 April 2020 15:00 CET by e-mail to corporate.secretariat@nl.abnamro.com. As a precautionary measure, shareholders/DR holders and those present on behalf of ABN AMRO will attend the meeting in separate conference rooms.

Shareholders are invited to submit any questions in relation to the agenda items by e-mail to agm2020@nl.abnamro.com before 20 April 2020 17:30 CET. These questions will be addressed during the meeting. Follow up questions can be submitted during the meeting via the Lumi application.

The agenda and the meeting documents were published on 11 March 2020 and are available on ABN AMRO’s website www.abnamro.com/ir. As announced on 30 March 2020, ABN AMRO has decided to follow the ECB’s recommendation to keep the initial proposal for distribution of the dividend for the financial year 2019 but to make actual payment conditional on a reassessment of the situation once the uncertainties caused by the coronavirus have disappeared (and, in any case, not before 1 October 2020). Therefore, the proposal to pay a final dividend for 2019 will not be put to vote at the AGM and has been removed from the agenda.
